What is forgivable?
Spokane, Washington (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
There really aren't enough negative adjectives to describe the horror of rape. The violation results in burdens and lasting residuals of fear and shame for not only the victim, but often for the assailant as well. This tale explores the psyche and the path followed by a young man of otherwise good moral character, as he finds himself in a moment of reckless abandon. Overtaken by his own unresolved issues and demons he finds himself in a nightmare of his own making.
Determined to atone and redeem himself he pursues a journey of selfless giving and dedication to others. His journey is disrupted years later when he discovers his true love, his angel, is his victim from so long ago. Can he ever tell her and risk losing her forever? Could she ever forgive him? He finds for himself the motivations for his atrocity, with a little help from a benevolent figure called ‘Death.'
Irony runs rampant through this story and neatly ties up the characters in an imaginative, yet poignant, expose on the aftermath and insecurities of both victim and assailant. A difficult subject? To say the least. Many, after reading this story, will leave with a new perception of forgiveness and empathy. It opens doors for discussions on this socially relevant issue.
